  • We're obsessed with social media, and all the oversharing that comes with it.

  • Not everyone needs to be up in your business.

  • Go private, from Twitter to Instagram, you can delete your location, along with personal details like your email, or phone number.

  • Depending on your platform, you can also control who's able to tag you in photos.

  • All this and more can be found in your privacy settings.

  • Next, delete any post that gives away sensitive information.

  • Your address, pet names, and things you use in security questions can be easily found in your social feeds.

  • Facebook is a prime example of this.

  • They know everything you do on and off Facebook.

  • And they use that juicy data to their advantage.

  • Create some distance by adding the Facebook container extension to Firefox.

  • The extension blocks Facebook from following your visits to other sites, so you can browse in peace.

  • Love your selfie, and everything that comes with it, by keeping your business, yours.
